Guitar-playi n g friends are always copying. Don't be fooled, Elsie!
Ugh. I thought my guitar playing friends were being all cute and clever playing this but they were just copying this guy. Boo!

He took an amazing song and turned it into one you'd hear on a poorly working elevator. This is so very wrong.

i think the way he's singing it gives it a different mood than the original. the original pokes fun at the fact that no one in this generation seems to be able to maintain a stable loving relationship the way people were able to do a few generations back. this version exposes the pain of this generation's inability to love.
stop hatin this is unique and he has serious talent
OH MY LORD. i love this cover.
FRAP!
Haters gonna hate. I for one think this is one of the best acoustic covers I've ever heard. I've heard better versions of this same cover than this radio edit but they are all pretty great.
love this
Um. I don't understand why people cover songs that shouldn't be covered, given the fact, it was a cheep song to begin with. I'd probably appreciate Obadiah Parker a lot more if I were to hear one of his original songs before I heard him cover a pop/rap song from Speakerbox (Outkast)

I remember when they did something like this on a certain show.

It took me until the first "Hey Ya" to realize what it was. I love this version just as much as the original.

This is a fantastic versions of this song. If you cant appreciate it, its obvious you dont know what music is.

I think this is pretty amazing, and unique.

This is absolutely awful. Just because you can take a pop song and slow it down with an acoustic guitar, it doesn't automaticall y make it a good idea. This sounds like a parody skit from SNL or Dave Chappelle. Can't believe this is an actual single. The "shake it" part, however, may be worth the listen purely for its comedic value.
